to figure out what you did wrong, and the obama people outperformed republicans in a number of ways. the idea that we are on the brink of going out of business is overstated. >> do you think that there is with the report that the chairman put together and if the republican party is willing to commit to reach out, is that the answer to try to expand the party by paying people to put operatives out there, to make that connection, to look for ways to expand the party? who it attracts? >> that is a big part of it. i commend the chairman. it was a very thoughtful, thorough report. it has some good recommendations. that is one of them. the fact is the obama campaign and the democrats did a good job of having people out there. they did that better than we did. they had a presence in all communities you had that you needed to turn out, to win. we need to be in the community year round, cycle through cycle, not just in the last three months of an election. having storefront campaign headquarters and party headquarters, people in the committee all the time is an important part. a lot of the f

. >> the republican plan is the same baby with a new diaper. >> we know that until recently president obama and israeli prime minister netanyahu enjoyed what can be politely described as a somewhat strained relationship. on april 7 of last year, the "new york times" reported benjamin netanyahu and mitt romney enjoyed a warm relationship. almost one year later, the israelis have given obama a medal. they appear to be on the same page on iran. >> diplomacy and sanctions have not stopped iran's nuclear programs. diplomacy and sanctions must be augmented by a clear and credible threat of military action. >> we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. >> will this story have a happy ending? >> this story will not have a happy ending. what we saw this week was barack obama at his best, connecting with an audience, and he made a compelling case for the need for a two-state solution, the security of israel and the well- being of the region. >> charles? >> the emphasis has been on personality. what happened is obama changed his positions on the settlement and
-- the outreach, the social media, the kind of ground game that obama had and republicans did not. it was lacking, and that is where it needs to recover, otherwise the game will be uneven from here until the end of time. >> colby king, i do not remember a case of self-examination to this extent in the past. >> you have never had the need for such self-examination. >> 1972, george mcgovern. >> they did do something after that. there was reform inside the democratic party, but in this case, i think they were right to look at the mechanics, but also they have to look at the other problem they have, the perception of the republican party. those focus groups put their finger on the problem. this is perceived to be a party that does not care about people. you do not change that by putting out fieldworkers to talk to people. that is not going to change it. it is not just a message, but the policy. why are people not responding to the republican message? >> you can have outreach, but you have to have something to outreach with. you cannot get women to vote for you if you are campaigning against the avail
of victory for president obama in november. the republicans 30%. that is on trust, that is as they say in the trade a big deal. the national republican committee today issued a scathing self critique of the republican party recent failures focus groups describe republicans as narrowminded, out of touch. $1.2 billion last year in the last presidential election alone and the future of the g.o.p. understanding you can't get it done just with money. as a result, the republican national committee has decided to pour resources into its ground game targeting youth and women and hispanics and other minorities while focusing on making the party's message more inclusive and open to different views. i don't know what they paid for the study, but that is kind of vague, don't you think? he had this to say to me last year. >> we can have all the voter contact in the world, but if it is not over a long period of time, it is not going to work so what we saw was mitt romney ran a pretty good six months operation, but six months operations don't work very well against for your operations. lou: nobody ha
on sequester, the filibuster on drone strikes and the vote on defunding obama car, republicans have stood together for principle. and in doing so, i believe we are winning the argument." with that kind of fuzzy logic, it's no wonder the americans are running away from the party. 27% of americans can identify as republicans. that's the lowest since the beginning of 2010. and only 33% have a favorable view of the gop. but senator cruz thinks republicans are winning the argument? yikes. maybe the effort to reboot the party is just a lost cause. joining me now, ryan grim and jamal simmons. ryan, do tea party republicans really think they are winning the argument here or are they just avoiding reality as long as possible? >> well, a lot of tea party republicans don't think that the other side has an even remotely legitimate argument to bring to the table. so they think they are practically winning it by default. you know, a lot of them almost wonder what it is that these democrats are even doing, saying that in the house of representatives, for instance, when the nation has elected republicans
republicans have come up with problems they faced, we are not in the dinosaurs' age, and it is that the obama campaign had a good analytical team, operatives, but they had a good message, and a great message that could reach out to not only voters who turned out in 2008, but expand on that coalition. the obama campaign had a great operation in place. while we sit back and figure out when republicans will revive, when the civil war will end between the establishment wing and the tea party wing, i am for the tea party one. keep going. i like these candidate. they make me look sane. [laughter] >> don't exaggerate now. [laughter] >> both political parties are in pretty rough shape. while the republicans have 10%, we have 30%. 2014 is important for the democratic party. we have to look at the electorate and make sure that our message and future messages will galvanize and motivate those to turn out voters as well. >> how long is the democratic party the party of barack obama? when does that shift so it goes back to the clinton era, if hillary chooses to run? when does that shift take place? >> as
of congressional republicans, including house speaker john boehner went on twitter insisting obama should stop this outrage of liking sports. get off my lawn! it is march madness, republican style. the first day of spring, the annual opportunity for house republicans to turn over an old leaf they know they shouldn't turn over any more but they can't stop themselves. also clearly it is going to be gonzaga. peter alexander is traveling with peter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the new attacks emphasize the importance of reaching a peace deal between the israelis and palestinians. and on that very topic, even as we speak right now live in the west bank city of ramallah, the president within the last five minutes touching down there by marine one, the u.s. helicopter. he is visiting with the palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas. this is the president's first visit with abbas. their conversation, of course, will focus on the potential for peace plan between the two sides. the president, however, yesterday indicated that he is really here to listen. administration officials have
in a state, a state that has the most restrictive laws in the country? during the election, president obama promised change we can believe in and he's delivering. republicans promise change, too. but nobody believes in it, least of all the republicans. joining me now are krystal ball and joan walsh. thanks for being here tonight. >> thanks for having us, reverend. >> do the republicans not notice their rhetoric, that it doesn't mesh with their reality? >> i don't know, to be honest with you. because on the one hand, they see the demographic trends. the rnc conducted an autopsy of their dead party. we know that there's a problem. >> we call it a flawtopsy. >> on the other hand, it would really upset their base on gay marriage, even as 58% of americans accept gay marriage, the base of the republican party is in this very different place. so they don't know how to make that movement without upsetting their base, which is why you saw after that autopsy, which did make some comments about young people needing to see that the republican party was more open on issues of equality for the lgbt commu
trillion. republicans say they're not going to do that. they want to roll back obama care. these are the two outside extreme positions. that's where we're at now. going forward can they come together and find some middle ground? >> weigh in on that, lauren. is there really a chance for reconciling these two extreme budgets? >> i think david kind of nailed it here. when it comes to the budgets, they're just a little bit too far, but this budget process isn't a waste of time. i think it's promising that they went through regular order. this is something that the senate hasn't done. they haven't passed a budget this a long time. i think what we'll see is this may open the door to pass some appropriations bilts for 2014 and this could put us on the road for a long-term deficit reduction deal. these are just opening gothss here. >> david, as i look at your article, it focuses on immigration reform and how it's making its way through the senate. where do things stand right now? >> alex, there's a gang of eight, four republicans, four democrats that have been working on this bill
is the name of the game in washington as president obama and republicans seek an illusive middle ground on spending and taxes. so far, the game is not going very well. >> is the grand bargain dead? >> i don't know whether we can come to a big agreement. the president believes that we have to have more taxes from the american people. we're not going to get very far. >> the president has sounded equally pessimistic about bridging the divide. >> it may be that the differences are just too wide. if their position is we can't do any revenue, or we can only do revenue if we gut medicare or gut social security or gut medicaid, if that's the position, then we're probably not going to be able to get a deal. >> while there's not much agreement there are plenty of ideas. washington is awash in budgets. no less than six plans are currently circulating on the hill. there is the plan from senate democrats, or the murray plan. it includes a one-to-one ratio of spending cuts and tax increaseses, as well as short-term stimulus. then there's the house democrats' budget, which pushes for $200 billion more
for republicans with obama as president and democrats in the senate to even get votes on good ideas. we are now finally getting the democrats in the senate to write a budget, 1418 days. they never wrote a budget. how did you campaign against democrats in the senate if they do not even write down what they are for? there are differences in how you structure. i think there is a lot to be learned from republican successes with governors like walker in wisconsin, who made dramatic changes on the cost of government-run pensions, the unionized government workforce, and bobby jindal with school choice. he is planning this year to abolish the corporate and individual income tax for moving in a very different direction than the national democrats and winning elections with that approach. there is a lot to learn both from the failure of the romney campaign and the senate races and the successes republicans have had in the state level. host: we are taking your calls in this segment with grover norquist, americans for tax reform. phone lines are open. grover norquist, known as an expert on some of the budg
, their first in four years, it garnered no republican support and four democratic nays. still, obama's 2012 campaign manager, jim mussina hailed it as progress. >> i think the senate passing the budget is a good step, along the lines of the prosals the president has laid out. >> much like the paul ryan house plan, the senate blueprint is a statement of priorities. ryan's plan consists entirely of spending cuts, $4.6 trillion of them, 66% of which come from programs for poor and working-class americans. on the other side, democratic plan calls for $100 billion in stimulus and an even ratio in spending cuts to new revenue from closing tax loopholes on higher earners. surprising no one, the senate's balanced approach was rejected wholesale by republicans. in their response to president obama's weekly address, tea partiyer mike lee tried to explain the gop's resistance. >> to republicans, the budget isn't just about dollars, it's about sense, common sense. >> in this case, common sense equals amendment-a-rama, as the senate debated the budget, republicans in the upper chamber went after their l
obama announced tom perez as his nominee, yesterday morning, at the same time, the republican party announced the results of its own self-autopsy. the chairman convened a tax force on why they lost so badly. if you want to bowl down what they found, it's this. they need to stop alienating and insulting everybody not in the party already. then you can have an outreach program in place to persuade people not in the party to join the party. the party will fund a program to minorities to the tune of $10 million and the republicans are stressing that whole effort can't be for show. quote, if we want voters to support minoritieminorities, we seem like we mean it. kind of see the line of thought there, right? for the republicans? they don't want to change their policies on anything, but they want to seem nicer. they want to seem more welcoming. just as the party is acknowledging missteps in talking about women, things like the whole legitimate rape, the party has to be a little shy about how it has behaved in public about latinos. and republican newt gingrich responded by calling her a rac
and with the republican party finding itself in sort of a coincidental temporal box yesterday, president obama nominating the first hispanic in tom perez and the autopsy about what went wrong in the last election. obviously, they don't like top perez as nominee. mostly for his politics. >> the basic problem the republican party has had when it's come to nonwhite voters, this is sort of at the root of it. you can go back, if you look at the message that was in this autopsy report, all about inclusion, respect, outreach, you can find repeated by past chairman, presidential nominees, major congressional leaders going back to the 1960s and '70s. the critical moment and modern evolution in terms of its relationships with voters, it was 1964. now they're getting into territory where the same thing is almost happening with latinos. they do slightly better, but are sort of permanently about 25%. so the most glaring problem here, we have rhetoric about immigration when it's somebody like perez. there's some rhetorical problems, but a deeper problem and that is that the republican party is sort of on the right sid

the decades to what the republicans want in the state battle we had in 2011, the budget control act was obama needs the debt ceiling to be increased because we spent so much money and republican said okay, we will raise the debt ceiling so the country doesn't default but only if you agree to a dollar for dollar reduction in spending over the next decade. that $2.5 trillion in spending restraints, not real cuts, spending, less than obama had hoped but in washington that is called a cut. if you want 10 of something and you only got eight of something, you walked away with eight but so that was the $2.5 trillion spending reduction over the next decade. it hasn't happened yet. we have several problems. the trillion dollars that obama obama -- obamacare tax increases in this decade have begun to hit now. oddly enough the democrats in the house and senate decided to put the tax increases, both of them after the 2012 election so everybody voted and now the tax increase has hit. this is not helpful for the economy and they think it's going to be unpleasant. >> host: up next from watertown south dakot

that thomas perez headed up predating the obama administration. republicans charge the decisions whether to pursue certain cases or not were politically motivated, that from senator jeff sessions, a republican from alabama, nominating mr. perez to the important post, the president placed his drive to promote his flawed immigration policies over the needs of millions unemployed americans. we need a secretary of labor who fights to create jobs for american workers, not one that undermines legal work requirements. this goes to the senate health committee, and tom harkin says perez was a voice for the most vulnerable and reenvying rate -- reinvigorated the enforcement of the most important civil rights laws. >> thank you so much. interesting story there. >> absolutely. washington trying to trim the fast, will your mortgage deduction end up on the chopping block? >> a drop in confidence, is two months a trend for a slowly recovering housing market? >> surprised to see that on home builders confidence. all right. metals headed to break, a bump in gold prices today with the news from europe, gr

other? 42% said obama's doing enough. only 26% said the republicans in congress, dana, are doing enough. >> right. i mean, that's actually not that surprising. but i think if you talk to many republicans in congress, like i do, one of the main reasons they say that they're not compromising is because they're sticking to their principles, and that's what their conservative base wants them to do. except, again, in this poll, if you just sort of look at what -- what we call the cross tabs, 55% of conservatives -- 55% of conservatives said that they did not think that their own republicans are compromising enough. that, to me, speaks volumes of maybe the fact that there is more of a desire among the republicans' top supporters for them to actually get things done. >> this is the problem the house speaker has. he is completely trapped. he did his fiscal cliff deal. republicans didn't like it. they know they had to kind of do it, because it raised taxes. they didn't like it. if he were to come out now and look like he's compromising and say, by the way, i'll put everything on the table, inclu

in american exceptionalism, not obama's socialist agenda. unfortunately, some in the republican establishment arewe as a movement cannot let that happen. contrary to what some in the establishment want you to win every election. we are not willing to sell out our principles for the sake of a wind. rinos will use our movement to get elected and then feign shock when conservatives call them out for bad policy. ronald reagan cemented our values with his analogy -- that conservativism stands for free enterprise, strong national defense, and pro-family social policies. if you take one leg away from the stool, the stool crumbles. if we sell out our principles then the conservative movementthose in the establishment who claim they know how to win are simply living a lie. just look at the past two presidential campaigns. how did that work out for the establishment? only in 2010, when our conservative grassroots were fully mobilized, hand in hand with the tea party did we prevail. last month the battle lines were drawn when karl rove and company announced to "the new york times," of all places, they w
. at this point it's a joke. republicans have been trying to portray president obama as other since before he was even elected. it started with the birther movement, but obama derangement syndrome has taken many forms since then. he's a socialist. he's a muslim, an elitist. he's waging a war against religion. but this weekend it took a turn. twitter erupted during the history channel's hugely popular miniseries, the bible, when someone pointed out a resemblance between the actor playing devil and president obama. he tweeted, anyone else think the devil in the bible sunday on the history channel looks exactly like that guy. >> the history channel released a statement calling it unfortunate that anyone made this connection. but that hasn't stopped right wing conspiracy sites from turning out. let me get this straight. the devil is a man who fought to reform healthcare to people with preexisting conditions can't be denied coverage. a man who's set to end a decade of war, a man who's fighting to raise minimum wage, oman who puts the middle class interests ahead of the interests of the upper class
